Jamie Oliver's wife Jools has revealed that she suffered another miscarriage during lockdown.

Jamie and Jools have five children: Poppy, 18, Daisy, 17, Petal, 11, Buddy, nine, and River, three.

Sadly, Jools has now suffered a total of five miscarriages.

Speaking on the Made by Mammas podcast, Jools explained that she has lost three babies since giving birth to her fifth child in 2016.

When asked by presenter Zoe Hardman if she was "pining for a sixth child", Jools admitted: "I really do, I really do, but I've just had three miscarriages since then [River's birth] and I'm thinking - and a recent one three weeks ago - and I'm thinking: 'No.'

"I dunno. I do want to, but I've got to mentally check that it's a good idea to do. And also physically because I am 45 as I always say, nearly 46. So it's a little bit dodgy."

She added: "Jamie is still up for it, kind of . . . not really. I haven't got long, maybe another year and then I really will just shut that chapter off because I am very happy and I am pretty full up at the moment as it is.

"But just that little baby, it's a terrible thing to keep wanting something and you can't help it."

Speaking about her miscarriages, Jools recalled: "I went to see the doctor the other day and he said: 'How are you mentally?'

"I thought about it and I went: 'Well, this is the fifth one now.' I had two before River, and they've been early ones, the last two have been at six-and-a-half weeks.

"So I just feel . . . I’m really good at going: 'Right, I’m pregnant but it won’t work so I’m just going to carry on' whilst everyone gets really into it and I have really learnt to not because I’m kind of not very positive about it."
